was Just open to the public on March 27th 2015 after the repair since 2009. I visited the Castle at 9 AM on March 31st. Many tourists enjoyed the castle tour and cherry blossom viewing. When I got out of the castle, the admission was resticted and tourist would wait one-hour at 11 AM.
when you visit Himeji Castle, pease visit earlier in the morning.
Furhermore I visited Kokoen, or a Japanese-style garden. You can enjoy green powdered tea at the tea house which is built to face the main keep of Himeji Castle.
